Emerging 2024 is a juried exhibition that nurtures the next generation of artists by helping students gain valuable hands-on experience learning how to present their work as a professional artist. Hands-on experience includes working with a professional curator, framing and finishing techniques, insights into pricing their artwork and participating in a gallery reception. Best of Show and technical merit awards are given in six age categories. Participating in the "Emerging 2024" exhibition helps students develop their artistic skills and equips them with practical knowledge while fostering a sense of support in the local community. The exhibition will be on view in the Dublin Arts Council gallery, 7125 Riverside Dr., free of charge, from January 13 through February 29, 2024. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the second Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
